The atomic kid

When Barnaby 'Blix' Waterberry and fellow prospector Robert Strauss go searching for uranium in a remote part of Nevada, they wander into the exact spot where the Army is about to detonate an atom bomb. Waterberry manages to emerge in perfect condition along with his peanut butter and sardine sandwich. An instant celebrity, he quickly senses the huge commercial potential in being the first human being to survive an atomic blast, but first he has to help the FBI break up an enemy spy ring.

An interesting film from Mickey Rooney Productions; where atomic bombs are not really understood. However, a fun movie. ~Mike
